Frequently Asked Questions and Q&A



A Week in the USA

I will be visiting the United States for a week at the end of the year. I would like to study English. What do you suggest that I do? Thanks, Carlos


Hi Carlos,

Most English courses recommended by schools last at least a few weeks to a month minimum. Some students may choose to study for a shorter period than this, but make sure you are realistic about what you can learn. For most students, making improvements learning a languages can take months or years. If you just want to get a feel of what the school is like, you may want to take a shorter length course. In some cases, you may be better off just enjoying being a tourist if you’ll only be travelling for a week!
